The 2013 Minnesota boys' state hockey tournament is a week away. While that promises to be its usual thriller, many contend the section finals are more pressure-packed.
Sectionals across Minnesota start tonight in both Class A and Class AA.
Among the big games, defending big schools champion Benilde-St. Margaret's faces Wayzata tonight at Mariucci Arena.
Also tonight, Duluth Denfeld faces crosstown rival Duluth Marshal for the 7A title at Amsoil Arena. A win for Denfeld, and they'll return to St. Paul for the first time since 1989.
St. Thomas Academy, last year’s Class A champion, takes on Totino-Grace Friday night at Aldrich Arena.
Here's a complete list of games, courtesy of the Minnesota State High School League.
Some the action will be streamed live on Prep45.com, the TV partner of the MSHSL. That schedule is here.
